The history of Insurance Post

Having reported on the insurance industry since 1840, we have become the market’s most trusted source of high-quality intelligence. We originally specialised in reporting on the UK insurance market, but today have editorial teams based both in London and Hong Kong. This allows us to cover the general insurance markets with both a global and local aspect.
